Chelsea Top 10s in the Premier League

While the no.10 was worn in the past by several Chelsea legends including Bobby Tambling, Ian Hutchinson and Charlie Cooke, it was only in 1993 that it was formally allocated to one of our players following the introduction of squad numbers in the Premier League.

Gavin Peacock became the first Chelsea player to use it on a full-time basis and did well with the number on his back in 1993/94, scoring in 1-0 wins at home and away against Manchester United in the league, and netting six goals in the FA Cup as we reached the final for the first time in 24 years.

Two seasons later in February 1996, Peacock became the first Chelsea player to score a Premier League hat-trick in a 5-0 trouncing of Middlesbrough.
